As for the playgrounds, rothing has been suggested except a dia- gram which may or may ss; mean anything. How are the summer sports grounds to be laid oat?

In the case of Alberta the province would become a separate entity with its own" tariffs againss the rest of the country enforced through the regu- lation of exports and imports by means of the distribution of money. ___________ Knally. of course, the "bad" Alber- taxation." In other- words, the gov- j ta money would drive ous the "good" emmsnt would linance any or all j money of the nation, within the of its oaerations by its province in accordance with Gres- ham's inviolable law. It is impossible to believe that the Alberta legislation is vsHd "un- der the Canadian constitution. If it is valid, if there is an unsus- pected legal loophole through which i; may be enforced, then the con- stitution does not provide for the existence of a single nation but per- mits nine nations to compete with one another and isolate themselves from one another within the frame- work of the Canadian state. The Alberta government evidestlv has grave doubts about- validity of its plan and will submit it to the courts for consideration before it is enforced. Indeed, the legislation is such a clear invasion of national. authority that it appears to be less a serious policy then a gesture to satisfy the Alberta government's more fanatical Social Credit fol- lowers, who have long blamed it for faiHrsir to institute thair theory and implement the original dreams of own monev as required. There is at least a theoretical limis on this crude method of foun- tain pen inflation. By section 21. the creation cf new monev is limited to "such ag- gregate amount; as may be required from time to tide by bringing the total purchasing power of ple of the province into balance with the estimated collective prices of the zoofis for sale within the province." If the aggregate pur- chasing power in the hands of the public exceeds the estimated, col- lective prices of goods for sale then the government undertakes (section 21) to reduce purchasing power by withdrawing some of its credit cer- tificates, by reducing its subsidies to retailers, by reducing- its social security pensions, or by increasing taxation. To make this system work an credit institutions which distri- bute government credit will be licensed and can be fined (section J. D.

In civilian life a peptic ulcer patient can choose his occupation, his food, his hours of rest and his medicine. In military life he must follow the routine discipline as to all .these factors to which is added the strangeness and the hazards oi war. Some of the findings of these two physicians are; 1. The ulcers were present be- fore enlistment; in 55 per cent of the cases, in line'of duty 45 per- cent. It took two years of military x duty to bring on an ulcer in those who did no; have ulcer before en- listment, and only six months -of military duty in those who had had peptic ulcer. 2.

That wiU include city- hall, library and museum, audi- torium, swimming pool, gymnasium, ice arena, and the turfing lay- ing out of the playing fields.
